Wimbledon seeds will be announced on Monday 19 June, with the full draw on Tuesday 20 June.
BBC Radio 5 Live's Iain Carter has compiled his own guide on the top 16 expected to catch the eye at SW19 this year.

Was beaten to a first Grand Slam title by her younger sister Serena at last year's US Open.

Began 2000 with a mystery wrist injury, and father Richard hinted that she may be on the verge of retirement.

Suddenly made her comeback with mixed results in the Spring, at the same time Serena suffered knee problems.

It is becoming increasingly rare for both sisters to show up at the same event.
